Easter Long Tails and arm wrestles

Recommended Posts

Heya Ted

Good to see the angler has some great skills but geez that gaff man :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo:

The boys would have had an absolute ball on those longies.

I reckon when you eventually fit the front casting deck we should install a decent swivel chair and fit a gimble mount to it for the boys to use.

Then we can take them out over the shelf to catch a marlin and yellowfin

I am not sure about the casting deck after this weekend. Swivel chair would have been handy though

Great report Ted - looks like a ripper trip. Will have to go up there and try it sometime. That third pic of Jacob with all the blood on him is priceless - looks like something from a vampire movie!!!! What sort of rod is that Declan is using in the vid? Looks like a good curve on it - what length?

Keep up the good work mate.

Saturday was an absolute ripper having those paddocks of busting up tuna just for you and us and 1 or 2 more boats all day, considering the mayhem back at the harbour. Geez i reckon u would of done some miles during your time up there.

Awesome report mate, that video gets the blood pumping.

Just a question, How were you targeting them (bait, lures or trolling?)

Cheers

Rob

We where targeting the bust ups and the birds. We where mainly using soft plastics with either a 3/8 or 1/2 jig head. We did use slugs as well when we needed a longer cast. When targeting a school of tuna busting up head around upwind or up current, stop the boat leaving the motor running and wait for the school to get close enough to cast into - if they are spooky you need to get close enough straight away and get a cast off as quickly as possible.

There are some coffee rock reefs around Wathumba and a reef off Station Hill. You can get a lot of the marks off www.fishntales.com.au and off the harvey bay chart.
